  • Fri, 16:40: Mixed day of pin trading at the event. We did 2 rounds on a line where you pick 1 of 4 boxes, the CM removes lid and you get 60 sec
  • Fri, 16:43: Fewer pins to choose from in boxes, and if not refreshed often the selection can be poor. I got Artist Proof pins but not exciting ones
  • Fri, 16:46: After a brief stop at hotel to drop pin stuff we are off to MK for Halloween party in Shannons car. Yes, it's August...
  • Fri, 17:21: Parked at the Contemporary, went thru security in the new procedure, boarded monorail to MK
  • Fri, 18:09: We entered on our party tickets since it was after 4, got our party wristbands, and also collected the special Sorcerers card for the party
  • Fri, 18:11: Short wait at the Plaza, so we'll start with some dinner. It also looks like it's about to storm-- it would be great for that to happen now
  • Fri, 20:21: Plaza favorite, the Reuben. Krissi got a mac and cheese with pork.
  • Fri, 20:23: Our good luck with weather streak at the Plaza continues--it rained before we finished up and now might be done for the evening
  • Fri, 20:27: Hit some treat spots, then to Circus store for party pins. Abysmal luck w mystery pins (not returnable)--I got the…
  • Fri, 22:13: Headed to Frontierland pin store, were told mystery boxes were sold out. Tried to find a spot for parade, ended up on store porch
  • Fri, 22:15: Watched Headless Horseman go by, but before parade started S said she needed to move. Our view was very obstructed so we left.
  • Fri, 22:38: K and S decide to skip fireworks and do candy trails in Fantasyland. I headed towards Emporium.
  • Fri, 22:38: Would have ridden Jungle Cruise but we found earlier that it was not running during party
  • Fri, 22:40: Emporium CM told me mystery boxes had all been pulled due to problems w duplicate pins.
  • Fri, 22:47: Found a good fireworks spot at the head of Main St, only disadvantage being having to stand on very tired feet.
  • Fri, 22:50: Off to Tomorrowland for a double ride on Peoplemover. Chance to rest feet and catch up with tweets. :)
  • Fri, 22:52: Probably headed to buses now--too sleepy to stay for second parade. Must be up early again for pin event Day 2
  • Sat, 01:14: Decision to punt parade confirmed by onset of steady light rain. I dug out my Mickey poncho to keep my daypack dry.
  • Sat, 01:15: Probably sweated enough under the poncho to equal time rainfall. Caught a bus expeditiously but as last person on, had to stand.
  • Sat, 01:17: K arrived maybe 20 min after me also via bus, tho her bus driver took wrong turn & went to Coronado Springs before getting to Yacht & Beach
  • Sat, 01:20: We have both reduced the pins we plan to take in tomorrow. I didn't do much today. K is doing the follow-on event Sun for more trading
  • Sat, 08:47: Up earlier this morning in hopes of being a bit closer to head of line. S arrived at Beach Club w McDonalds coffee and sandwiches at 6:30ish
  • Sat, 08:49: We walked to Epcot gate, big outer gate was still closed, about 10th in line. Same sort of procedure as yesterday: separate pin event line
  • Sat, 08:50: Security dog arrived and sniffed larger bags, suitcases. Smaller bags hand inspected, then through tapstyles and up to England hold point
  • Sat, 09:04: Walked us in to World Showplace, got the front and back gate lines synchronized, then formed the final lines in front of doors at 8:30ish
  • Sat, 09:11: Getting a few trades in as we wait, easy as the line is static, everyone can pull out binders and let people browse.
